His most famous collaborator, Oscar Morgenstern, was clearly a
marginalist.  So, his status as a figure in the classical tradition
is subject to doubt. I think it might be better to think of von Neumann
as a figure who had a foot in at least a couple of different
(and contradictory) intellectual traditions.

What about neo-Napoleonian?
What's the name of the book?
